Use Cases

Custom Use Cases

Lever customers commonly take advantage of Lever’s rich stack of APIs in order to power custom configuration and integration of business systems.

For example, using our candidate creation and update endpoints, you can build:

  • A custom jobs page
  • A custom referral / agency portal
  • A university-specific jobs portal
  • Sync to HRIS/HRMS to update candidate information in Lever

The Lever API also allows you to integrate with third-party tools to:

  • Add a candidate into Lever with custom sources, tags, stage, and meta data; with or without a job posting
  • Update a candidate status in Lever based on events in your third-party app
  • Add sources and tags to a candidate profile in Lever

Here are some examples of the things you can do with the Lever API:

  • Export candidate data to onboarding and background check software
  • Export richer data downloads than those that are available through Lever’s UI
  • Pull data out of Lever for custom reports
  • An HRIS/HRMS integration that pulls candidate data about all hired candidates
  • A dashboard page that shows a visual representation of candidate data
